Re: Nostalgia for the so-called dark ages of DB

To restate a point I've made earlier, if a bunch of separate people are telling you you're coming off as an asshole, and you're really not intending to, perhaps it's time to reconsider the tone your posts are actually conveying? Noted. For serious. TheBigBoy was just recounting their personal exper...

That's what I got from your comment, a bunch of "you're wrong!"s :lol: A bunch of the emotions he's describing in that post ("it felt to me like no one else in the while wide world knew about this except me!") are actually rooted at the heart of a LOT of still glaring misconceptions and incorrect a...

Re: Nostalgia for the so-called dark ages of DB

You mainly miss being a kid. Almost everybody does, it's cool. As I've been hammering on for quite some time now on here: the whole "I miss being a kid" thing is something that's become, broadly and pop culturally at this point, WAY too overwrought and pushed WAY too far into ludicrous extremes by ...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

You seem to throw out a lot of strawman arguments - acknowledging something that is blatantly related to identity politics as such is in no way homophobia. We are talking about retconning an established character for the sake of pandering. Why is that so hard to understand? At this point, someone n...

Re: What specifically was wrong with Vic Mignogna’s take on Broly?

It didn't really get going until the '90s with the likes of Swat Kats, Sonic SatAM, Gargoyles, Batman: The Animated Series, and whatnot. Anime was growing fairly large during this time as well, so it's not like there was no awareness of Macross, Speed Racer, or The Rose of Versailles. But at the ti...

Re: Vegeta is a sapiosexual right?

Considering what we know about both characters (Vegeta and Bulma) up to the point in the series where they originally hooked up (early Jinzoningen arc) and the circumstances surrounding it - Vegeta training like a madman for the forthcoming fight against Gero's creations at Capsule Corp while Bulma ...

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

I'm not happy but I'm not upset either. Pretty much exactly this. I'm certainly not offended by Super's existence (unlike Heroes, Episode of Bardock, and Minus, which are all godawful mistakes that never should've come into being) but I also am not in any way moved by it in the slightest and its th...

Re: You are put in charge of the entire Dragon Ball Franchise what you do ?

Dragon Ball should be public domain. This way anyone can create the works they like based off of it to fulfill their creative desires. Or, wild idea... people can maybe instead just create something that's wholly original and totally their own and maybe (god for-fucking-bid) add something that's ge...

Re: Is being attracted to a Dragon Ball character considered weird?

Just gotta make sure people in the eye-are-ells still do it for you, though. I don't think there's anything pathological or problematic at all unless you're uninterested in real life people. Pretty much this. Finding a cartoon drawing of a woman sexually attractive is just... whatever. Who cares? M...

Re: Will Toonami survive without new Dragon Ball Content?

Gundam Wing didn't deal with politics with any degree of depth or sophistication. It's biggest statement on the matter is "peace good, war bad." "War sucks" is pretty much THE predominant and defining theme/sentiment of Gundam as a franchise (or at least its ostensibly supposed to be : it kinda fal...

Re: Will Toonami survive without new Dragon Ball Content?

This post is one of the worst posts I've ever seen on this site. How did it cause anime to be only kid stuff in the west when Adult Swim aired all that adult stuff before there was even a Toonami revival? Adult Swim's level and degree of "mature content" is... HIGHLY questionable much of the time. ...

Re: Will Toonami survive without new Dragon Ball Content?

I have a hard time believing the industry moved away from more adult material and put all its focus on what you deem to be tripe. My guess is more mature material got as much focus as it got before. That guess would be VERY much stone cold factually incorrect. The disparity in the level of general ...

Not stepping into the massive wall of a discussion about whether or not liking Toonami as an adult is okay or not
